Breastfeeding – the best for your baby
Breast milk is free, natural and adapts to the changing nutritional needs of your growing baby. It also helps protect your baby from infections, because mum’s antibodies are passed into the milk. It’s convenient as it reduces the need to spend time sterilising bottles and other feeding equipment. In addition, breastfeeding helps the womb return to its normal size and burns calories, so it can help mums get back into shape more quickly after giving birth.
